Bendix Diner | Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey

Bendix Diner, Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey


Bendix Diner Is Legendary

 

Bendix Diner in Hasbrouck Heights has been around for decades. 

 

Apparently it was named the Bendix after the Bendix Corporation  which had a factory nearby.

 

The diner is situated - literally - in the middle of  Route 17.

You can see a little bit of this diner and other Jersey classics, some by the Jerry O'Mahoney Diner Company, in this video by Alan Wasenius, which includes the Bendix in the beginning of the video (including the interior): 



Check out his YouTube Channel.

 

Most of the diners in the video still exist.

 

Sadly, Max's in Harrison, that adorable red and white cream puff diner, is gone now, replaced by a very ugly, generic building. 

 

Also gone is The Wildwood Diner, which was also demolished.

 

UPDATE 2022:

 

In 2021, Bendix appeared in yet another video AND the Sopranos prequel.


The New Yorker wrote about their documentary The Blind Man Running His Family Diner which is about Bendix Diner.
